Fiorano API Management

 

Integration approach to API Management:

Fiorano API Management is particularly well-suited for enterprises that need deep integration capabilities to build APIs on top of existing applications. The system offers a range of capabilities, including protocol transformation, mobile backend-as-a-service (MBaaS), standards-based access management, version management, API rate limiting, and metering (analytics). Backend and third-party web services can be transformed into easily consumable APIs, governed by self-service policies.

Fiorano API Management also provides contextual analysis and visibility into API initiatives and associated digital assets to help drive developer and user engagement. The system is available both as an on-premise platform and as a cloud service.
